The Thermolator is one of our most popular quonset greenhouses, aka Tunnel. Growers have successfully built thousands of Thermolator greenhouses / tunnels since 1980. The Thermolator boasts the best value per square foot of all our greenhouses as it can be used for practically all crops.
The Thermolator comes in standard width of 35'. The Thermolator 35 is widely used by many tomato transplant growers.
The code Thermolator 35 has 8' sidewalls. The Non Code Thermolator 35 comes in 5' or 6' sidewalls. The tall sidewall configuration allows full use of the span and the sidewalls may be equipped with either roll-up walls or dropwalls for convenient access to crops from both sides (often used by transplant growers).
Agra Tech's Thermolator 35 Non Code is a light weight, wide span arch offering maximum square feet of ground covered for the dollar. It is for use in non-snow areas.

Jim Bergantz, our Agra Tech rep, played a huge role with this project and he couldn’t have been more agreeable. One of the best things about hiring Agra Tech is that you also get Ag-Con, which is great. They have done all of the construction for each phase and it has been amazing. Ray Pound and the job foreman, Jaime, are on top of everything and their problem-solving skills have been very helpful.
Bahne talked to three different companies before signing with Agra Tech, he said. “They came back with a plan that was flexible and they we’re really willing to work with us at a reasonable price. We met with them and they helped us adjust the design. What they came up with was very similar to our original design, but they made it much more practical. They thought about things that we didn’t think of and that was a big deal, to say the least!”
